I have to agree with many of the reviews pointing to the same thing: mediocre food at high prices. Being this is the only sit down restaurant, unless you packed a gold brick for the Ahawahee, you’ll be eating here after a long day of hiking. The entrees at the Ahawahee appear to be about $15 to $25 more.
To start the meal I had a foo-foo mixed drink ($10) that was mostly vodka with no taste of the other ingredients.
The salads and soups are priced separately, so we skipped that.
My trout almandine (frozen) was good with fresh crisp vegetables and rice. For $21 it would have been nice to have another touch to the dish.
The trouble was my wife ordered the hamburger patty, chips and toppings off the gluten free menu. Either it was not prepared correctly or a side dish was added accidentally as she was up all night. Her other meals that day were what we had brought, so we are sure they were the offender.
Among the positive comments, the crème breulee for dessert was perfect and the service was very friendly and fast.
